Actor Jonathan Majors from Marvel received support from his girlfriend Meagan Good as he faced trial for an assault charge in New York City.
On 25 March, Mr. Majors allegedly assaulted his ex-girlfriend while they were in a car in the city on their way to his apartment. He has entered a plea of not guilty for all accusations made against him.
The girlfriend has alleged that he struck her, forcefully placed her in the car after she got out, twisted her arm, and grabbed and harmed her hand. The prosecution claims that she received medical treatment for minor injuries to her head and neck, including a cut on her ear.
Priya Chaudhry, the lawyer for Mr. Majors, has referred to the accuser as “dishonest”. In June, Mr. Majors filed a complaint against her, claiming that she physically assaulted him and accused him of texting another woman.
On Wednesday 29 November, the process of selecting the jury began. If Mr Majors is convicted, he could potentially face a maximum sentence of one year in prison.
